Issues That Can Impact Your Stove And Oven

Dean Wade

Your oven and stove will likely be the centerpieces of your kitchen. Without these appliances, you will find it all but impossible to effectively prepare food for your family. Luckily, ovens and stoves are highly reliable and durable appliances that will usually last for many years. Furthermore, the problems that they do encounter can usually be easily corrected by an appliance repair service.

Broken Control Panel

The control panel of the oven will be the part of it that you interact with the most. This can lead to it suffering substantial wear over the years and can eventually lead to the panel not functioning as intended. While this can impact the performance of the entire oven, it will not necessarily force you to replace the whole appliance. In most instances, an appliance repair service will be able to remove the faulty panel and replace it with a functional one. You can help to reduce the risk of these problems impacting your stoves control panel by ensuring that your hands are free of grease or other substances when you use it. Over time, these materials can get behind the panel where they can interfere with electrical components.

Oven Not Heating Correctly

The oven failing to heat to the desired temperature can be a serious issue as it may leave your food under-cooked and unsafe for consumption. If you suspect that your oven is not reaching the desired temperature, you can test it by measuring the interior temperature while it is on. Often, this problem can be related to a failed heating element that is preventing the interior from maintaining its temperature. Luckily, replacing a faulty heating element is not expensive, but it can be difficult if you are unfamiliar with the design of your oven. If you retained the owner's manual, it will likely include the steps for safely and effectively replacing a failed heating element.

Electrical Issues

The vast majority of modern ovens and stoves will include a series of electrical components. This can apply to natural gas units as well, due to the fact that they will use electricity to power the control panel and other components. One common electrical problem that poses major issues is if the appliance is drawing far too much power. This can overload the internal components of the stove while also damaging the wiring in the home. A circuit breaker that is regularly tripping when the stove is active can be an indication that this problem is occurring.
